LastPass May Have Been Breached, but Not Really - Regardless, Your Data is Safe

Lastpass, my favorite password management solution, noticed a “network traffic anomaly” on their servers yesterday which they couldn’t account for. They immediately notified users that they were investigating if any data was breached, and said this: Because we can’t account for this anomaly either, we’re going to be paranoid and assume the worst: that the data we stored in the database was somehow accessed. We know roughly the amount of data transferred and that it’s big enough to have transferred people’s email addresses, the server salt and their salted password hashes from the database.
